Movable-bed model studies were conducted of seven of the most complex and troublesome reaches of the Mississippi River to obtain some quick general indications of the effectiveness of plans proposed for the improvement and stabilization of those reaches. Because of the limited time available, the studies were conducted in an existing facility with little or no adjustment of the models and in some cases without a base test. Because of the limited size and shape of the facility, only a relatively short reach of the river including the problem could be reproduced in each model with little or no overbank areas. The horizontal scale varied with each reach depending on its size and shape and were much smaller with a higher distortion of the linear scales than was considered desirable for studies of this type. An analysis of the model results compared with developments in the river based on an evaluation of considerable prototype data indicated that the types of models used predicted, at least qualitatively, most of the principal trends that actually occurred in the river with the plans tested. The degree of accuracy of the models varied and depended to a considerable extent on the model adjustment, characteristics of the reach, flow conditions, and similarity between plan tested and actual construction. The analysis of model and prototype data permitted an evaluation of the performance of various types of dikes and dike systems and some of the principles involved in the developments within alluvial streams

Geomorphology and quaternary geologic history of the Lower Mississippi Valley by Roger T Saucier( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Abstract: this comprehensive, two-volume synthesis, the first in 50 years, is aimed at a multidisciplinary audience concerned with multiple aspects of water resources engineering and natural and cultural resources management. It presents at a scale of 1:250,000 the distribution of environments of deposition as compiled from more than 30 years of detailed geologic mapping, as well as a new interpretation and delineation of the eroded suballuvial surface. A detailed interpretation of the evolution of the alluvial valley and deltaic plain is presented and illustrated by a series of 13 paleogeographic reconstructions. The chronology of valley events is based on stratigraphic relationships and radiometric age determinations but relies heavily on archeological evidence. The geologic processes and controls that affect the entire region include continental glaciations, climate, sea level variations, tectonics and diapirism, and subsidence. Both erosional and depositional landscapes are represented, and the lithology, soils, and geotechnical properties of the latter are presented in narrative and tabular form for the principal fluvial, lacustrine, eclian, deltaic, and deltaic-marine environments. Discussions of neotectonics in the region focus on the New Madrid Seismic Zone, and a section of the synthesis addresses special engineering considerations such as groundwater occurrence, mass movements, river meandering, and long-term stability."--Publisher's website
